I've noticed some google oddness, a lot of sites have suddenly dropped quite low in rankings. My DeveloperFusion profile page is now higher than my CV and this site!

Robert Scoble is now the SECOND Robert. No other search engine places THAT much weight on the Scobleizer.

And when searching for my current employer, Capita, a partner of theirs comes up first!

I have been trusting gigablast and even the new MSN search more than google recently, and I can't quite be sure what google have done to skew their current index.

(At least, on the search engine front. I am very impressed with some of google's current projects.)

Google have always ranked the Developer Fusion profile pages highly for some reason. Having said that, in the last set of page ranking calculations, Developer Fusion actually went down (from PR8 to PR7) along with many other sites. For once MSN seems fairly sensible and lists your own site before your df profile! ~ James
